Details

RSVP via Meetup is mandatory to attend the talks, due to limited seating capacity. Registration won’t be required to attend the event from 21:00 for the game showcase part.

Talk & Play is a free event, taking place every two months, that provides the opportunity to game enthusiasts, players and makers to meet in a friendly, relaxed and safe environment. Everybody's welcome, regardless of their background and knowledge level: if you like games, we'll make sure you have a good time! This is NOT an event only aimed at developers.

HOW IT WORKS

The event is structured in two parts:

— TALK: Short game-related presentations + announcements from the community

— PLAY: All participants are welcome to exhibit games and projects they've made

THE TALKS

We have a series of short talks (5 minutes each) planned for this edition:

— Em Lazer-Walker: Running a live battle royale game with a team of 2?!
Flappy Royale is Flappy Bird reimagined as a 100-player battle royale. We'll talk about how we designed a massively multiplayer online game requiring no server upkeep, and how the game is secretly an act of guerilla game history preservation.

— Freja Alexandra Knudsen & Marek Plichta: Socks & Sandals
The day we dressed up as silly looking German tourist and went to fancy galleries in our hometown Berlin. A game about performing and embarrassing yourself in the real world.

— Johanna Janiszewski: Dramatic Reading: Unity for Dummies
Johanna wrote a book and now she reads from it. Dramatic!

— Maren Brede: Surrounded by introverts — Tales of a role-playing (mis)fit
What I observed during two campaigns of DnD and learned about myself and games.

After the talks, we'll have a "pitch" session, during which a selection of game makers will briefly present their projects, that you'll be able to play in the second part of the evening.

As usual, there will also be a section dedicated to short announcements from the community – get in touch to reserve a spot: http://berlingamescene.com/contact/
